    It’s a little expensive is it not? I’m sure it’s more economically viable for someone to write their own! 😉

    I agree, am I missing something here? I mean, I can see two reasons to want this source code, personal education and commercial.

    As far as personal education goes, I do believe RSS Bandit is an open source project so, while you might learn something from saucereader I doubt it would justify a $10,000 purchase.

    As far as commercial, I don’t see paying $10,000 for the code/rights to a project that (a) competes in a market where the software is free and (b) competes in a market that is (more than likely) about to become obsolete because of browser integration.

    I’m just baffled by this (though I’ll surely be eating crow if it sells)
